Active Time: 15 minutesTotal Time: 15 minutesMakes 3 servings
We know "shortcake" is a stretch, but trust us: this Passover-friendly dessert is downright delicious and beyond easy to make.


1 pint strawberries

1 orange, juiced

8 oz mascarpone

3 tbsp powdered sugar

2-3 tbsp unsalted butter

2 pieces of matzah

A few sprigs mint

Step 1

Slice strawberries and combine with some of the orange juice. Set aside to let them macerate.

Step 2

Mix mascarpone with powdered sugar and a tablespoon of the orange juice.

Step 3

Melt butter in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the matzo when the butter is melted, and fry until they are crispy and golden-brown. About 1 minute on each side.

Step 4

Assemble shortcakes: spread a generous layer of mascarpone on each piece of fried matzo, then top with sliced strawberries and mint. Dust powdered sugar over the top for an extra touch of sweetness!
